A basic votive candle is all you need!  You can order them in bulk very inexpensively online.  As with any candles you may buy for an event, check the burn time before purchasing (ex- if you are having a 6 hour reception, you want to make sure your burn time is 8 hours, and not 3)

natasha0b :  You can do either! Votive candles tend to last longer (because they are taller). I agree with PP make sure that your candles will last for however long you need them too! 

I saw a pack of tealights on sale and got really excited – and when I got home and tried to see how it would look with my decor.. they lasted a solid 30 minutes..
